Woman's Day Presents the Sixth Annual 'Red Dress Awards' Honoring Women Making Strides in the Fight Against Heart Disease
Date:2/3/2009

on, Dr. Desvigne-Nickens is considered a "go-to" person for ideas on how to advance women's heart-health issues and programs.

  • Rose Marie Robertson, M.D. Chief science officer of the American Heart Association, Dr. Robertson coauthored the AHA's Scientific Statement on Evidence-Based Guidelines for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention in Women (2004) and has played a key role in developing and promoting the Go Red for Women program. While she was president of the AHA (2000-2001), they partnered with the Office of the Surgeon General, making the AHA's work to reduce deaths from coronary heart disease by 25% by 2010 possible -- a goal that was actually reached in 2008. In addition to her work with the AHA, Dr. Robertson was professor at Vanderbilt's Women's Health Center, where she established Vanderbilt's Women's Heart Center.

In addition, this year's Red Dress Awards, will recognize Swarovski, for their outstanding commitment to fighting heart disease. Swarovski was one of the first companies to get involved with the cause, when they created the first red dress pin, made from Swarovski crystals in 2003. Over the years, Swarovski has donated more than $1.6 million to the cause through partnerships with the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women and the NHLBI's Heart Truth Campaign. Each honoree will receive a Swarovski Red Dress designed award at the ceremony.

Honorees will be featured in the March 3rd issue of Woman's Day, on newsstands February 10th. For more information on Woman's Day Red Dress Awards, log onto www.womansday.com/reddress.

This year's event is sponsored by: Campbell Soup Company, the maker's of St. Joseph Aspirin, and St. Jude Medical and Conair and BaByliss PRO.
